Houston, we have a problem

No sooner did I blog my successful upgrade to Movable Type version 3.17, then I discovered a problem. MT would continually ask me to log in. I searched the MT forums, and eventually found that there was a known issue in 3.16 if the blog was in the root directory. The suggested workaround was to move the blog to a subdirectory on the web server. The forum went on to say that version 3.17 fixes the problem. Well, in my case, it didn’t fix the problem. After spending a whole bunch of time trying to debug (and discovering that mt.cgi wasn’t even sending me a cookie when I logged in), I decided to take the plunge and upgrade to the 3.2 beta. At least it’s fixed my login problems…
